ReCoN February 20, 2006 4:15:59 PM For legal reasons i would stongly advise that you edit your posts so that they are not suggesting dowloading illegal software. As for the pc, get a seperate power supply and some better ram unless you have no intention of overclocking. Vickrum February 20, 2006 9:45:48 PM Thanks all, I appreciate all responses. Looks like there isnt anything fundamentaly wrong with my picks. (I.E. noone said that motherboard is junk or anything like that) My plans after getting this are a audigy4 and a dell 2001fp in the next month or so and a new PS and 2nd card in a couple months I'll post again in a few days when I get it up and running since I'm going to willl call all the parts and don't have to wait for shipping. IRanNaked February 21, 2006 1:11:55 AM http://www.mwave.com/mwave/viewspec.hmx?scriteria=BA222... get 2x1GB of Corsair RAM.
